Bug#304783: impossible to install debian 3.0 r4 with bf24 kernel

Hello, As I'm configuring a Testing / Mirror server for a production one, I must use the same version than on the original one. So, I don't want to use the Sarge version.
The only thing I really want is to be able to use a kernel > 2.4, in order to use ext3 file system like on my master server.

I don't understand why my computer boots normally with a 2.2 kernel (It detects all my hardware) and why it hangs up with every kernel > 2.4 I tried.

The problem is not related to boot-floppies. I insist, it is related to kernel

I am trying to use the last Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 r4 and I'm a bit surprised
that the default kernel is still a 2.2

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r4 is the new revision of the STABLE (woody) release, which by now is a few years old. It is not too surprising that it fails to detect modern hardware. Please have a look at


to obtain the installation media for sarge (aka testing), the distribution which will become the new stable release Real Soon Now (tm).

If that will resolve your problems, please close this bug by emailing 304783-done@bugs.debian.org.
